UPDATE: 3 dead, 213 hospitalized after new earthquakes – authorities.
The most recent earthquake, according to the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), occurred at a depth of 1.2 miles.
It was centered on the Turkish city of Antakya, where the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck two weeks ago inflicted more damage to buildings there.
There have been reports of earthquake vibrations detected in Egypt and Lebanon this evening.
A predicted 50-centimeter rise in sea level as a result of the earthquake prompted Turkey’s disaster management organization, AFAD, to warn locals to avoid the Mediterranean shore.
When the ground began to tremble, Burhan Abdelrahman, who was residing in a tent, remarked, “It was really strong.” That shocked us from our positions.
In order to check on them, he said, “I called relatives in Syria, Adana, Mersin, Izmir, everywhere.”
The two earthquakes that occurred on February 6 in the same area are believed to have killed about 46,000 people.
More than a million people in the area were left homeless as a result of the catastrophe.
